I don't think the old garden could have burned. All that mold and dry rot.

Well, seeing as how rats are rather flammable, I suppose it might have gone up like a roman candle.
You sure those "Lobsters" weren't rats in red suits?

I'm all for ambience and history, but the Garden was pushing it to the limit. I saw many a Bruins and Celts game there over the years and all I can say is that I shed no tears when it came down. I was stunned, however, at the quality of sound that the boys were able to produce in the place when I saw the run in 91. Hats off to Mr. Healy and Co. Saw many concerts there and I was sure that no band could ever sound so good in that place. I was gladly proven wrong that week.

Speaking of the garden, lately I keep re-playing this footage from a magical night there in 1976:

Game 5 - Celtics/Suns NBA Finals---triple OT:

I am not even a Celtics fan, but this was just an amazing basketball game. Though I was a major fan of the man who ruled the garden ice and changed the game of hockey: mr orr. But I shall avoid posting those links...

Never, never hesitate to put up an Orr link. He handled his stick like Jerry handled his guitar. Both masters. My folks tell me I was at the Gahden when Orr put it in to beat the Blues in '70, but being rather young I have no memory of the event. My loss.

Speaking of posting Orr links:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5Elmn3Rcq8&;feature=related

also, seeing these and others brings out bucyk, hodge, espo, cashman, and the rest.

though I do want to find one showing him fall on his ass when being introduced at the first Soviet-Canadian Series...

so I shook his hand at a Bruins-Pens game in Pittsburgh and didn't wash my it for over a week. I wore a plastic bag over it the majority of the time.
